traveling somewhere. it is a busier travel day it's monday. 47,000 faa employees will get furloughed as a result of budget cuts. they will lose one day of work every other week. the pilot's union due to the faa will staffect so many people. >> out of those 15,000 were air traffic controllers. perhaps it's a better idea to perhaps maybe drive somewhere because gas prices are going down. >> this is the time of year when they are supposed to go up. let's enjoy it while it lasts. gas prices could fall almost $0.20 by memorial day. it would go down to $3.30 a gallon. inventories are high we have a lot of supply. and the economy is slowing down. consumption is the lowest since 1997. this morning gas prices averaging 3.52 a gallon. last year at this time 3.86. that's a nice little savings. >> some say could go below $3 a gallon? >> rocky mountain region could see 32 -- $2.98. >> road trip. >> finally. it is 11 minutes after the top of the hour. a runner survives the marathon bombing only to return home to texas to witness the fertilizer plant explosion and he's sharing his story.
